Especially interested in insects, I worked with butterfly and moth distribution models during my master thesis. I tried to understand the importance of different variables on species distribution. Since then, I continued looking for trends in species distribution according to biological traits through the use of modeling techniques and phylogenetic approaches, particularly with butterflies and bumblebees.
For my PhD, I am using very high resolution data to better understand the climatic niches of the species and predict species distribution or assemblage in mountainous environment, particularly the Alps. In the models I mainly focus on butterflies, bumblebees and grasshoppers and their relationship to vegetation using high resolution climatic data.
